St Thomas University and the University of New Brunswick, welcome you to the Association of Atlantic Universities 2012 Teaching Showcase (AAU Showcase 2012).

The Teaching Showcase is an annual event that brings together faculty members, instructors, graduate students, and others who work to ensure excellence in teaching practice at Atlantic universities. The Teaching Showcase provides a forum for people to reflect on teaching practice, discuss issues related to university teaching and learning, and share teaching strategies.

As you can see from our Showcase logo, the focus of this year's Teaching Showcase is on 'Conversations'. As a focus, 'Conversations' is meant to encompass diverse topics including, but not limited to:

  • online conversations
  • ways to promote in-class discussion
  • faculty-student interactions outside the classroom
  • ways to teach and promote group work
  • peer assisted learning
  • learning communities
  • team-based teaching
  • teaching sharing communities
  • others..

In keeping with this focus, this year's conference will include two 1-hour concurrent plenary sessions along with the regular 25 minute sessions. We encourage you to consider facilitating one of these longer 'conversations'. For more information, see the preliminary Call for Proposals.
